Enjoying the blessings of Fatherhood

A herdsman by profession and standing 7 feet and 8.95 inches tall per Guinness Book of World Record, BAO XISHUN, (born 1951) from Inner Mongolia, China once holds the category world's tallest human being but was officially replaced on August 25, 2009 by 26 years old SULTAN KOSEN (born Dec. 10, 1982) who stands 8 feet and 1 inch tall of Mardin, East Turkey.

While enjoying the rare honor and distinction of being the world's tallest- Bao one day upon seeing the birds and the bees fly in pairs- felt sad and longed for someone to love and be loved. So he made good his intention by posting ads all over the world. Not long after- Bao's ardent prayer for a companion was answered in the person of Xia Shujuan, 29, saleswoman, who stands 5 feet 8 inches tall and came not from away lands but from Chefeng- the same place where Bao hails.

And so the church bells tolls for their traditional Mongolian wedding ceremony on the 12th day of July 2007. It was a grand, well-publicized affair where visitors from far and near came to wish the newlyweds good luck and to witness and enjoy the eating, drinking and the merrymaking;

Hours before the marriage ceremony- Bao was quoted as saying: "If we can have children, we'll have children, if not- then not. If we have a child, I hope he or she can be about 2 meters tall. Then he or she can play basketball". Xia who was visibly in love with Bao, said, "You need to have feelings for someone to be in love. Even if he is big shot, you can't love him without feelings

Righjtfully Bao Xishun can now claim a new title as the world's tallest father. Indeed for his wife- Xia Shujuan according to the Guinness Book of World Record had given birth to a perfectly healthy baby boy weighing 4.2 kilograms and 22 inches tall. The baby is named Tianyou who was born in a certain Wednesday in 2008. Bao Xishun as father, read more.
